Cheap flights from London to New York
Book a London to New York flight and the Big Apple is yours for the taking. This iconic American city has three airport hubs. There’s John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and La Guardia Airport (LGA) in NYC itself, plus Newark (EWR) across the river in New Jersey. Wherever you start from, you’ve got a long list of must-dos. Visit New York City in December and do your Christmas shopping in Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s. Visit in summer and sit down to an open-air concert in Central Park. While you’re in town, tick off Times Square, climb the Empire State Building and snap a photo of the Statue of Liberty. We weren’t joking when we said it was a long list…

In short, a lot. London to New York flights serve up the kind of sightseeing opportunities that most cities can only aspire to. Manhattan is the star attraction, and the place to head to if the Empire State Building, Central Park and Times Square are on your to-do list. But there are four more boroughs to explore if you truly want to get a feel for the place, so save some time for the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, too. Weather-wise, New York winters are cold, so you’ll want to pack your warmest clothes if you’re visiting between Thanksgiving in November and the start of April. If you’d prefer to pack your summer wardrobe, book a London to New York flight between May and October instead.
